Visit from Chile promotes trade links for the mining industry
An initiative set up by the UKTI and hosted by the Cornwall Mining Alliance (CMA) resulted in a visit to Wheal Jane by Viviana Daza, mining and minerals specialist from the British Embassy in Santiago, Chile.
The aim of Viviana’s visit to the UK and Cornwall in particular was to promote trade links within the mining sector.
The CMA was an obvious point on contact given the collective expertise in Cornwall being promoted through this new industry alliance.
Viviana met several CMA members, including Clifford Rice, director of Wheal Jane Laboratory, and was able to have a short tour of the laboratory itself.
The visit was a very useful opportunity to promote the expertise here, and a firm line of contact has been established which we hope will result in work from Chile, one of the few countries in the world we have not yet had work from.
